Did You Know?


The film was aired for the first time at a sneak preview for the world freediving elite at the team world championship in Vancouver in August of 2004. It immediately caused major controversy in freediving circuits, because of storyline critique of the real AIDA agency depicted in the film. Apparently, the freedivers themselves found the film's depiction to be unrealistic. It was reported that during many of the films dramatic highlights, parts of the audience were giggling. See more »

it was pretty good actually
16 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Wow man you sound really angry! I really enjoyed the movie! I thought that the accents were very convincing and the film was made beautifully made!

I love diving and although the film seemed to take considerable creative licence, I was very entertained.

I especially thought the Greek photography was excellent and made the idea of taking a break there a sound idea.

Unlike the previous guy, I do suggest the movie to anyone who enjoys the sea and chick flick movies.

I agree that Adam Baldwin overplayed his hand but considering that this was a low budget movie... its a goodie.
